Hey K2 Kanakuk Gals,
(*after typing this I am adding this side note: this post ended up being more about my top 5 Disney movies rated according to their villian and how scary they are...what can I say? As a mom that is the angle I watch and think now)

I recently FINALLY watched Tangled....WOOOOOOO---LAAA-DEEE---DAAAA---HOOO!!! I heart this movie a lot. I loved the characters, the music and the little lizard dealy thing. I just thought it was so cute.

I thought after watching it I would tell you all my favorite disney movies...well, just top 5:
1. Tangled...I know it's new and it's not considered a "classic" now but I loved it. The villian wasn't scary and they hardly showed her in the "I'm the mean villian" look. I loved Mandy Moore as Rapunzel and adored the guy that does the voice of the guy (Flynn, Eugene...I would have stuck with Flynn). I love the lanterns and love the total predictable Disney princess movie feel to this. It was time for that!
2. Beauty and the Beast. Well, I have a child named after Belle...just kidding. We didn't name our secondborn from a Disney princess...promise. I love the music in this one...epic and classic! I love Belle and how she is different and loves books. Again, I like that the villian isn't a "scary" looking person (i consider the villian to be Gustan...spelling?).
3. Cinderella. Oldie but goodie. I love the animals in this one and love the mice...guss, guss. Again the villian is not super scary (evil stepmother) and the princess and kind and loving...and the dance where they fall in love is just priceless.
4. Mulan. Again, one of my favs...although my villian in this one is a bit scarier. Love her courage and bravery for her family in this one.
5. The Little Mermaid was my fav growing up but I must admit now as a mom I'm not sure because the sea witch lady is, well, scary to me and I'm 30. I love the music and again when I was in, ahemm, high school, this one was my fav.

So there you have it...obviously my kids affect my top 5 as I love the Disney movies that are totally Disney princess movie but with "not so scary, squiggly legs, weird vudu, sorcerery" villians. Oh, ps...I think Aladdin is probably tied for #5...not as scary as the sea witch villian but scary bird :)!

Be Awesome & Love Jesus,

Flynn = Zachary Levi.

You should know this information if you know me.

I might buy Tangled today just cause I want to watch it again! Loved it!
